Aequora at East Harlem School


The East Harlem School at Exodus House is an independent school for students from grades 4-8. Each grade has approximately 30 students which is split in half to achieve small class sizes. At the East Harlem School, we are proud to partner with The Paideia Institute and offer Aequora as an after-school program.

Aequora is a K-8 curriculum focusing on literacy education via Latin. Led by independent site-coordinators, Aequora has expanded to over 30 sites in 12 states. At the East Harlem School, we have chosen Aequora because we believe in the benefits of a classical education. Through The Paideia Institute's Aequora curriculum, our volunteers harness the classical languages’ power to improve literacy while making the ancient mediterranean world fun and accessible to students of all backgrounds. To support Aequora, please click on the button below.

Our site coordinator, Evan Glick, is a student at the Heschel School. Our Aequora class meets weekly every Thursday after school from 3:45-4:45pm. The program is offered to 5th and 6th graders who are learning about mythology in their humanities class. Our students, typically 8-10 per week, are selected by the administration based on responsibility and performance during school hours. Each Aequora session takes place in a classroom which is equipped with ample materials and amazing technology to supplement learning. In addition to the Aequora curriculum, each student learns the Latin roots of their weekly vocabulary lists required from their other courses.
